I took a tour through the local Dodge, Honda, and Subaru dealership this morning. By what I saw, that report seems pretty accurate. F Series, Ford Explorer, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Cherokee, Expeditions, Chevy and Dodge trucks, and a bunch of other vehicles were sitting on the clunker lot......including 2 Land Rovers. 1 work truck still had a nice looking ladder rack on it. I mini-van looked like it might have been sitting under a tree for the last year.....I don't even know how they saw out of the windshield to drive it there. Most of these vehicles looked shot, but a few looked pretty good.

I sometimes wonder if the reason for outsourcing to other countries, probably not just Mexico, is so the parent corporation can make a greater profit. Remember, there are people called stockholders, who need to be kept happy! The same, I suspect, is true of the Japanese who are outsourcing to us. Perhaps this is a simplistic view, but the bottom line is always profit. There is this new thing call the "world economy.""
